Pitch problems are frequent especially with reel to reel. Tape warble can cause serious pitch issues as far as channel vs. channel. In other words, your left channel could be proper and your right could be off or even nonexistent. Using both channels or remixing them into one from the original source on this one was probably a challenge to say the least. Another cause is the head of the machine being out of calibration. Oscillation will cause similar problems as well. Im not even sure of the rig they were using at the time....

Whoa! Holy "Group Credenza Award" Batman! You all really do know what you're talking about...

Impressive. Rare posters with much to say...hmmm.

As opposed to frequent posters with little to say? I resemble that remark, sir! ;-)

Yep. It's an ecological truism: most species are rare, while few species are common. Think "Poisson" distribution (my favorite kind). And, a corollary: common species are often generalists, while rare species are more typically specialists. Now, getting your students to grasp this is not as easy as it might seem on the face of these simplistic inferences...

Draw your own conclusions. When I was in Uni, we never considered ourselves deserving of an education, why...we walked uphill, both ways, thru the snow, to get to school each day...did I mention we were barefoot? Nowadays kids take a consumerist approach in which they take it as a given, presumably as a result of their tuition, that they are entitled to a high grade, as if purchased, rather than it being the case they have only purchased the opportunity for learning...

I would suggest that you can best consider yourself a specialist, rare and refined, comfortable in your niche, here in the Ecological Community we call Forum Land.

Did you ever imagine your brief humorous comment would elicit such a rant from a disgruntled Tell?

That's OK; I like 'adult portions' and that one will take some time to digest, yessirree. :) Not the response I expected, which is a positive right there. That being said, if you are doing an anthropological study of the fauna on this blog, you shouldnae blow your cover...

Hmmm, took me a while to find this...can't believe I was so cranky about students and such yesterday...oh well, a new day, new hope (star wars or otherwise).
